REPALOUD: Citizen: An American Lyric

BY CLAUDIA RANKINE

ADAPTED FOR THE STAGE BY STEPHEN SACHS

FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 10 7:00-9:00 PM

LOCATION: TO BE DETERMINED 

Citizen: An American Lyric, a meditation on race that fuses poetry, prose, movement, music and the video image, is a provocative stage adaptation of Claudia Rankine’s internationally acclaimed book of poetry about everyday acts of racism in America adapted by playwright Stephen Sachs. The New Yorker wrote that it was brilliant… [and] explores the kinds of injustice that thrive when the illusion of justice is perfected. The New York Times wrote that Rankine brilliantly pushes poetry’s forms to disarm readers and circumvent our carefully constructed defense mechanisms against the hint of possibly being racist ourselves."
